A New Daxflame Response Video

As many people know, I am a frequent viewer of Daxflame's videos. He has done a new one featuring some of his singing skills.

I decided because I haven't responded in a while to any of his videos, I would do a video response.

I hope you enjoy!

My Grandfather

My grandfather is a wonderful man. I have been mowing his grass for several weeks now, and initially he started paying me. I didn't want money because I wanted to do it out of the goodness of my heart. My problem has always been that I'm not good at saying no. I'll try to refuse money, but I usually end up taking it because I'm afraid of upsetting people.

Finally I found a way to refuse it, and my step-mom basically backed me up on that. I was finally out of a sticky situation! So he told me he'd find another way.

Monday I went to mow for him again. When I got there, he told me he had something for me. I looked and it was a brand new keyboard with a keyboard stand included (shown in this video)! I was pretty excited about it. I didn't attempt to refuse because I think in that scenario I really would have hurt his feelings. He went out his way to get that for me, so I decided to take it. That was his way of getting back at me for refusing money!

I really wish I was better at refusing things, but I have to say that this really shows what kind of person my grandfather is. He'd do absolutely anything for me. He's truly a great man, and I hope to live up to his ways as I get older.

Shortest Hair I've Ever Had!

I can't believe how short my hair is! I decided I wanted a hair cut because I was tired of seeing it so long in the front. So I asked for it to be cut short this time. The lady started trimming away. My hair wasn't really that long in the back, but when she was cutting back there, I saw all this hair falling all over the place. I was starting to get a little uncomfortable because of how far up she was cutting. It was the longest time I have ever spent in a chair getting a hair cut.

Everytime I look at my hair now, I am a little shocked at how short it is. I have never had my hair this short before. Don't get me wrong, it's been really short, but I think this holds the record. I wasn't sure if I liked it or not. I am started to grow used to it though, and my family seems to like it.

I'll be posting a new video on my YouTube channel. You'll be able to see the dramatic change when I post the new video. I'd love to hear opinions. I'm not used to my hair being this short and am picky about my looks, so feedback is good.

Very Busy

I'm still alive, I promise! I've just been extremely busy lately. I've been doing a lot of work out in the heat for several days in a row. By the end of the day, I just don't even feel like writing in my blog or doing a video.

Basically what I've been doing is a bunch of mowing at several houses, shoveling dirt at a construction site, and doing random things for people. I am definitely tanning, which isn't a bad thing because I don't like to look pale.

Music for the Contracters

Today I played music for an event for a bunch of contracters in the area. We were supposed to do three sets, but a bad storm came (nobody wants to be under a grounded tent in a storm!) So we played two sets.

There wasn't enough power for the generator to run with, so we had some issues throughout the day. I couldn't hear myself play part of the time. I made the best of it though. I figure I can get mad about it, or I can make the best of the situation and try to enjoy myself. I did the latter. Plus I've had far worse gigs, so it didn't seem like the end of the world to me. I ultimately had a lot of fun!
